Day In, Day Out + my favorite letter P + Doodles

Started a new piece called, 'Day In, Day Out' from one of my previous sketches... I'm about 70% finished. It's acrylic and ink, on 14"x17" Bristol. I'm really happy to get to put more intestines in my work, those are always fun to draw... I also used glazing for the first time in FOREVER since college, but with acrylic this time (which I've never been too successful with, but I really like how it's working).

I've been experimenting the last few weeks on test paintings, to try to (once again) try to get the drawings to be 90% finished before I tweak on the computer. Below are three results of that, one of them hasn't even been touched by the computer! :) (I liked it too much to finish past the point I was at... can you tell which one??) I've just really missed the feel of painted work and wanted to change things up a big, and get down some thick paint, instead of the watercolor-like stuff I've done previously. Makes me feel rather bold actually...!

And last, but not least, I want to scan more of my typographical oriented stuff and put up here more often... so here is a really nice letter P that I drew on the train ride home tonight. (and a fish lady... I thought it was funny at the time, but now I guess Isee its a bit more creepy...)

A Motherload of all posts: New (ish) pieces

I finally got around to not being lazy and decided I'd post up some work I did over the past two months and update everyone. (yes! I'm still alive!)

Velvet Love.
This one's pretty small, about 15" x 15" started with acrylic+ink and then finished on the computer. I really love how the tattoo turned out.

Oh Yeah.
Just another sequel to my "Oh Me, Oh My" piece. It's all acrylic, no digital in this one. Measures about 25" x 16". I've been trying to stray away from finishing/creating work on the computer only because I'd like to have a wider range of gallery work to show.

Also, the above is a preview of a skin I submitted to Infectious. Please vote for it if you like it!

Anyway, this last month has been just a crazy awesome enjoying of life and non-internet related stuff. Went to a bunch of really fun NYC free concerts and movies, went down to Miami for a weekend, moved into a new studio apt, and my awesomely fantabulous boyfriend, Nate Bear, is now living with me! He's looking for a job, so if anyone knows of anything graphic designerly or illustration based work that fits his style, he'd love to hear from you.

I hope everyone's summer was as awesome as mine was... and if it hasn't been, make sure to end it with a bang! (I still can't believe how fast it flew by!)

<3 Happy Summer!
